Need help buying <£50 headset for gaming

Posted 14th Jun
Promised my brother if he did enough work i’d buy him a headset and here we are. I’m aware that people often recommend getting a dedicated mic and headset separately but for him I know he’s me just wants it to be a gaming headset. I’m not wanting to spend more than £50 as it’s not all that serious, just need it to be good quality and last at least a few years. Can anyone help point me in the right direction? Thanks.

I bought the Turtle Beach recon 70 about 6 months ago. Would not recommend. The volume control is very unreliable. The feeling reminds me of the volume control from the £5 cassette Walkmans back in the day.
Hyperx cloud stinger, RAZR Kraken lite, astro A10's, steel series artic 1. You won't go wrong with any of them. All can be had under £50.

Edit, some of these support 7.1 surround which is applicable to pc and PS4 and not Xbox. Whether 7.1 is a deciding factor or is even noticeable at all, just thought I'd add since description doesn't say which console or pc.

Maybe you were unlucky, I had a set of turtle beach for £35 found very good for price for Xbox. I use steelseries arctis 7 for pc and they are fantastic for range and battery life but a different price level..

Hey, really appreciate the list! Astro’s are a bit more expensive than the other three but the razer, hyperx and steelseries look perfect, just need to pick which is the best of the three now

You can get the Astros for under £50 no problem. There honestly isn't much between them, I'd look into what's more comfortable wearing for longer periods. Glad to help
Pro4-70? Pro4-80?
